    Hi ! Guys.
    Any thoughts on this peaked cap ?
    It has been said that it belongs to the Ministry of Propaganda ?...
    But i have never seen anything like this before.
    Sold by a militaria dealer in Sweden.
    Best regards:

    No, definitely not propaganda.
    IMO, it is a BRD civil visor with added TR insignia.
    Can you get interior photos?

    More detailed pictures are required of both the outside and inside to form a judgement. It would be very easy to add a civil eagle and cocarde to any blue visor cap. I would like to see some documentation from the dealer as to how he attributes this cap. I always felt members of the propaganda ministry wore the political leader uniform.

    As Bob says: better photos would be okay.
    It could be Zivilkraftfahrer. Maybe?

    Well, it is plainly not a "BRD" cap, if it was made in Vienna before or after the year 1945.

    Austria was no longer a part of the Greater German Reich after May 1945.
    damit, basta.

    Had a quick look in my files and must conclude it is not a
    Zivilkaftfahrer!

    It is close to "Kraftdroschkenführer", which is a sort of
    taxi-driver (often a coach). But then the insignia is wrong, as far as I know.
    Maybe in later years such person was allowed to use the state eagle, which
    occasionally was allowed by state personnel.
